The new player works, but it doesn't list the entire file name, so for a page with many files I don't know what I'm listening to. The old player did list the complete file name.

Don't be like Facebook and enforce change that wasn't asked for and people don't want. I do not want the new player, and my own files are compromised in that no one will know what is playing.

i've updated all 18 items to have a "length/runtime" for each playlist entry.
(that's item-based)

as far as improving the playlist...

i've dropped the fontsize from 13px to 11px, and done "hard right cut" of 34 chars for titles (latter especially helps where a title or fallback filename has no whitespace for more than 34 chars).

that helps quite a bit for all 18 items. there's just a few now that have some minor issues. maybe you could move the "part 1" and "part 2" from the end to the front on them?

sorry i don't have a perfectly ideal solution for you...

I'll show your my user survey of people wanting a new player if you show me yours? ;-)

I see 18 items which I believe you uploaded.
Most seem 100% OK, maybe two nixon related ones do have some of the issue you mention.
I'm trying some extensions to allow word breaking with CSS but nothing working quite yet. The new player has two major "display modes" -- flash and html5 video tags. It's been setup with various baked in assumptions on playlist entry height so I'm not sure trying to extend that is the best idea (and the more we customize, the harder it is for us to upgrade to a player upgrade).

So nothing conclusive yet, but poking...
